9:00 am
resting. i wish i could be there. her teammates were there to present an wared to beyonce. the colin kaepernick controversy continues. reaction from the 49ers quarterback, teammates, and live with chronicle columnnist. human trafficking survivors from the bay area. we are live with the filmmaker and woman who escaped from that terrible world. plus, defying the odds. we meet a cal state east bay student featured in a series about ordinary people overcoming extraordinary obstacles. >> that's right. jackson brown. are you running on empty on this monday? classic song from the '70s. welcome to "mornings on 2: the 9". it's going to be cloudy this morning. the sun is going to come in later on. highs 60s to 80s. i am sal castaneda along with
9:01 am
mike and gasia. >> and coming up in this show we are still thinking about the search for san francisco police chief. a very important meeting is happening today. also, donald trump is visiting the bay area. we are going to get to that. we begin this morning with 49ers quarterback colin kaepernick's decision not to stand for the national anthem before games. it has ignited a firestorm around the country. kaepernick spoke to reporters for more than 18 minutes at training camp yesterday. he refused to stand for the national anthem at all three of the 49ers's preseason games. he says he will continue to sit until he feels there is significant change in how people of color are treated in the u.s. ktvu's scott reiss has more on kaepernick's remarks and reaction from his teammates. >> reporter: colin kaepernick took a seat to take a stand. >> ultimately, to bring awareness and make people realize what's really going on in this country. >> reporter: the beleaguered quarterback, who might be fighting for his roster spot, is now fighting what he
9:02 am
considers a much more important battle for social justice. >> there is a lot of things that need to change. one specifically is police brutality. there is people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable. cops are getting paid leave for killing people. that's not right. you have people that practice law and are lawyers and go to school for eight years. you can become a cop in six months and don't have to have the same amount of training as a cosmotologist. that's insane. >> reporter: his actions reverberated quickly among the 49er fan base and eventually inside the locker room prompting a closed-door meeting prior to sunday's practice. >> the message was to let the other guys just understand what he was feeling and where he was coming from. again that personally we could approach this how we are going to approach it but be knowledgeable about his stance. >> we know colin. we support colin. we don't think he is a bad
9:03 am
teammate because he decided to voice his opinion on such a strong topic, but we can't allow this to divide our team. >> we are grown men. everybody is gonna have different opinions. you might agree what he did, what he didn't do. but the timing of it, everybody might have their different opinion about it. at the end of the day, he is a 49er. he is our brother and we are gonna go forward. >> the support i have got from my teammates has been great. i think a lot of my teammates come from areas where this might be a situation. their families might be put in this situation. the fact that it has blown up like this, i think it's a good thing. it brings awareness. everybody knows what's going on and we can move forward. >> reporter: kaepernick clearly owning his actions. when asked if he would continue to sit for the anthem, he said yes. when asked if he was concerned for his safety going forward, he said no. we'll see if there is any backlash when the announcedders conclude their preseason schedule in san diego on
9:04 am
thursday. in santa clara, scott reiss, ktvu fox 2 sports. >> as you can imagine, a lot of reaction from 49ers fans to colin kaepernick's decision to remain seated during the national anthem. some are considering boycotting 9er games. others are applauding his decision to take a stand on a controversial political issue. we got lots of reaction from 9ers fans at a parts bar in santa clara. >> i don't think that his views represent the team's views. i think it's his own personal view so it's not really the appropriate platform for something like that. >> it's his right as an american. you don't have to stand up for national -- we can do it sometimes and sometimes we don't feel comfortable. we can sit and be quiet. he is not disturbing anybody. >> he is the latest pro athlete to go public with views on a social issue. the dallas cowboys wore special decals on their helmets to honor the city's five officers killed in month. last month wnba players wore black lives matter matters
9:05 am
shirts stating change starts with us. columnnist chuck has covered sports for 20 years. he joins us this morning. just the front page has the quote, you know, kaepernick saying this wasn't for me. >> right. >> do you believe him? that deep down inside this isn't about him? >> it's interesting. two years ago we were complaining he never said anything and he was boring. we solved that problem. >> that's for sure. >> obviously, it's his right. it's obviously an important issue. the fact that he picked the national anthem, he is aware of it, but that's an issue. because of that, lebron james wore a black lives matter t- shirt. this is nothing new in terms of controversy. but the idea of the national anthem and not standing for the national anthem -- >> and looking at the country's flag. >> yes, it's going to be one of those lightning rod moments. he mentioned, i may lose endorsements, may have problems. it's the right of every athlete do that. on a personal level, it may have been career suicide. >> didn't muhammed al --
9:06 am
muhammed ali do this? >> yes. and another refused to stand for the national anthem and he was suspended for a game. that was 20 years ago. some things have changed. it's extremely emotional do something like this. we bring the military in. we bring the police officers in. i know he was aware this was going to happen. it obviously is very important to him. but it could have ramifications down the road personally and in terms of the nfl. >> some people are calling this a courageous decision. other people are saying there is no courage involved when you have millions in the bank and no problems in the world. one viewer wrote, let him trade in his football jersey for a uniform. be the change you want to be. a lot of people bringing up his multi-million dollar paycheck. >> he is in for $11 million whether he makes the team or not. people say why don't you join the police force. he promises there is more to come. >> what do you expect that to?
9:07 am
be. >> maybe a foundation. i don't think we are not having this discussion. i think we are having this discussion. outhits important -- i think it's important. is in the vehicle for it? i don't know. it is courageous in the sense that he is putting his career in jeopardy. >> what about that? what if he doesn't make the team? do you think other teams will touch him because of this? >> that's important. preseason he was not only auditioning for the 49ers. teams don't like controversy. tony la russa, the manager of the a's, said the bigger pain in the neck you are, the better talented you better be. is looking to be a backup quarterback. well, other teams are going to look at that and say he has a certain skill set, he hasn't played very well. every day it's going to be an interview about this controversy. do we want to take that on? >> even if he didn't do this, there was a chance he may have been cut. , right. >> what about the effect on the 49ers? they may say, hey, we just cut
9:08 am
kaepernick based on his play. they could get -- as an organization could get a lot of -- >> absolutely. this is the -- >> lines about that not what it's about. it's about what he did in the preseason. >> right, right, right. this is the last thing they want. they are trying to rebuild the team. wonderful success. frankly, they are facing a real revolt among ticket holders who say we pay 20,000, $40,000 for a seat license. now we are getting a terrible product. and to sit in your seat having paid $60,000 and watch the quarterback sit for the national anthem is not what the 49ers are hoping see. >> why not? why now? i keep going back to the timing of this. even in the 18 minutes that he spoke, he talked about how this isn't anything new, suppression. all of a sudden this season he did it. does it have anything to do with not playing or being a backup right now and there is something deeper going on with himself? >> i think there is something. i was joking when we start the. but literally he had very
9:09 am
little to say. he did not want to speak publicly. he gave the most generic possible answers and the shortest possible answers. now suddenly he has become a social critic. well, god bless him. that's great that he does that. i don't know how that happened or where it happened. i think you're absolutely right. it's a huge transformation for someone who did not, as far as we knew, had any political activism at all and now is suddenly speaking for the people of the united states. >> do you think he would have done this at the height of his career? >> that's the key. i think if he had done that and he had been joe montana, i think that it would have been, a, impactful, and b, it would not have hurd his career. at this point i am not sure that it is good. >> this might take away from his personal trying to make the team, distracting himself from doing what needs to be done. he is in danger of being cut. >> i think it's going to have to have some impact on his attempts to make the team. this is -- i mean, he did a 20- minute interview. someone pointed out this is monday. the talk shows are just getting
9:10 am
started nationally. what does rush limbaugh say about this? this could have legs nationally. he may be -- this may be the beginning of colin kaepernick giving interviews talking about these things. he better have his talking points down because it's so easy to slip up and then those guys will jump on you with both feet. >> how do you think the reaction is going to be in san diego? >> well, it's a military town. i would not be surprised to see some boos. hear some boos. that's definitely a military town. >> more kaepernick jerseys being burned perhaps? >> exactly. >> it's drawing at the love reaction this morning. we appreciate your joining the conversation. our ktvu question. day is on your screen. how do you feel about colin kaepernick choosing to remain seated during the national anthem? a number of responses. i'll start with walter. he tweeted, quote, colin kaepernick has the right to freedom of speech. however, not standing for the national anthem is wrong.
9:11 am
doesn't stand for oppression. >> clement roberts tweeted that the kaepernick fiasco i feel is more because he is not playing than what he is saying. >> and amber gregory says, i think patriotism and love of country are not as simple as standing up for the anthem. he did what he felt was right. she continued on to say i honestly have trouble understanding why people are so upset. he just didn't stand up. is it really a big deal? >> we will keep checking or responses through the morning. we will go back to them at 9:30 and read more. hughes #ktvuthe9. we are learning more about the shooting that claimed the life of dwayne wade's cousin. the arrests police have made and the reason investigators call this case especially concerning. and guys, the search continues for permanent police chiefs in san francisco and oakland. coming up where we are in the searches and how the public can weigh in coming up.

these city's online survey about the qualities they would like to see in their next police chief. the police commission says it will stop accepting application force the position on wednesday and they will begin interviewing candidates in september. while the commission is pretty much keeping their list of applicants secret, it is not a sec rit that current acting chief toney chaplin has shown interest. he was gotten support from the mayor, mayor ed lee. we will stay on top of this here on "mornings on 2" as well as the coming weeks when the cities select police chiefs. back to you. >> thanks. >> for more information about the meeting and a link to that online survey just head over to our home page at ktvu.com. for more on some of our other headlines, let's go to dave clark. >> here are some of the top stories we are following for you this morning. an early morning two-alarm fire in san francisco near 5th and minna streets lit up the sky
9:17 am
59:00 this morning. fire crews were called to the four-story vacant building. it's in a neighbor that has commercial and residential buildings. the cause of the fire is under investigation. no one was hurt. the building is owned by the hurst corporation. it had been under renovation. obviously, those plans are delayed because that fire has caused damage to the building. meantime, memorial services will be held wednesday in sonoma for the two little girls who died when their family truck crashed last week into the russian river. four-year-old haley marcus and her six-year-old sister caitlyn were trapped in the trunk when it plunged in the river and sank. emergency crews tried to save the girls but could not. the girls will be buried at calvary cemetery in bodega. well, reports of a shooting last night at los angeles international airport turned
9:18 am
out to be a false alarm. hundreds of people panicked, ran out of the airport after hearing someone inside was shooting. airport police shut down traffic to the terminal area. no flights were being allowed to land. police searched through the terminals but did not find anything or anyone with a gun. people inside the airport say it was chaos. >> we got off the plane and were exiting and saw just a mob, a crowd running towards us, and we immediately started running, went through an emergency exit that was close to a gate, ran down onto the runway, and got behind a catering vehicle. so that's all we could think to do, is just getting safe and getting out of there. >> police now say what people thought were gunshots was actually just loud noises. but they are still trying to figure out why those noises came from. those are just some of your morning headlines from our newsroom. mike, sal, gasia, i'll send it back to you. >> dave, thank you very much. coming up next on "mornings on 2: the 9," it is a new
9:19 am
documentary about human trafficking in the bay area. we are joined live with the filmmaker as well as a survivor.
9:20 am
mr. brady, we've been expecting you. will you be needing anything else?
9:21 am
no. not a thing. beautyrest black. get your beautyrest. a bill now being considered by the state assembly would allow victims of human trafficking accused of crimes to wipe the slate clean. it lets human trafficking survivors erase convictions for non-violent crimes. it passed the senate just last week with bipartisan support. it's one of five bills that aim to help human trafficking survivors caught in the criminal justice system, to move forward with their lives. all of the bills were moved out of the senate and sent back to the assembly for a final vote. >> still i rise is a documentary that follows the stories of two sex trafficking survivors from the bay area. >> now, according to the fbi, the san francisco bay area is one of the country's top 13 hot spots for child sex
9:22 am
trafficking. >> being in this situation puts you at risk for everything that we already know it puts you at risk for. sexually transmitted diseases, trauma and abuse, and all of that. but it also puts them at risk to be murdered. >> this morning we are joined by the filmmaker and advisetory the film and a surrounded -- advisor to the film and survivor herself. thanks for joining us this morning. thank you for having us. >> what a difficult subject to even talk about. cheri, i will start with you. how did you approach a topic not a lot of people want to hear about, let alone talk about? >> well, you know, i think this is the biggest human rights violation in america, you know. children up to 300,000 children every year are being bought and sold for sex. you know, when i first decided to make the film, i was looking at it more pan ramically. i wanted to understand the neurobiology of trauma. what the role law enforcement was playing.
9:23 am
what role advocates were playing. as i got deeper into the subject matter, i realized that it was survivors who were also leading the movement. it was survivors who were helping to change legislation. survivors were at the forefront of prop 35, which passed in a landslide two years ago. the survivors also reaching back and helping to employ younger victims, mentoring them. >> if you would like to join this conversation as well, how does someone get out of human trafficking? >> okay. so you don't get out because it's a trauma effect. so it's like a holocaust survivor. >> it's with you always? >> it's always going to be with you. what you do is you get support from someone who has been there, who has opened up a path for you so that you can heal. survivor leaders, our hope is
9:24 am
to help heal. help take away stigmas. >> can you give an example of how that trauma stays with you? >> i can. so i come from generational trauma in all different forms, and every situation that happens in america that has affected me as a survivor of all types of trauma definitely puts me in a more sensitive, you know, subject. you know, it's more sensitive. it's a little bit harder -- this bill is a wonderful bill. when i decided to do different things in my life, it was very hard to overcome the criminalization of that. it took me five years to get those things off my record, you know. so to have a bill that helps people to say that you are not -- >> you are not a criminal?
9:25 am
>> you are not a criminal because you were victimized. >> one of the surprising things about this is it's going on right here. it's not going on in another country. it's going on in oakland. every big city in the united states. >> very much so. >> we might see these young people or these people and we don't even know it? >> absolutely. you see them at the bus stops. you see them in schools. you see them walking down the street. i think that one of the main issues that still i rise is trying to address, too, is why this issue is so disproportionately impacting girls of color in our community. >> 40% of sex trafficking victims are african-american girls? >> that's correct. the average age for a victim to be exploited is 12. >> why is that? >> it's easier for me to talk to a child and coerce than it is for me to talk to an adult and coerce them.
9:26 am
so people -- it is the first impression that when you see someone who is being victimized, that they have a choice. children have no choice. you know? there is no such thing as child prostitution. it's child abuse. child rape. so once that language is understood, then we get to points where we can combat and make bills like this. >> i have heard stories where -- do you use the word pimps? >> the exploiter. >> i have heard they promise i will get you the shoes you should be wearing. i will take care of you. i will love you. are the victims often sort of kind of pulled in with the promise of, i'll take care of you? >> you know, love and belonging a very universal need, right? >> right. >> so when you take somebody who is 12 or 13 years old, it's like what was happening to you at 12 or 13 years? you are going through puberty. >> i am confused. i hate my parents. >> the reality is most of the girls that are recruited in the
9:27 am
commercial sex industry have a history of sexual abuse, child abuse, enter generational poverty. there is a lot of systemic and personal failures, basically, and traumas that are happening to a child that make them vulnerable to being recruited in the first place. >> so. >> and oftentimes that starts with the relationships or the lack of protection in the family. and most of these girls -- >> in the media. in the educational system. >> absolutely. >> in the justice system. so it's a bigger issue. >> and the goal of this documentary is to address every one of those angles? >> correct. >> on this issue and let the viewers -- >>ia. anybody who is interested can see still i rise the film dot- com. it's a film really about humanizing survivors. nobody amongst us wants to be piggen holed by our worst experiences. it's about showing survivors who are leaders who are helping to change legislation, who are
9:28 am
employing girls, who are mentoring and bringing love and support. i think that human connection and love are the solution to any kind of brokenness in our society and whether that's domestic violence, whether that's survivors of cancer, whether that's survivors of commercial sexual exploitation, it's about human connection and support. >> thank you so much for coming and talking about this very important topic. in fact, we have posted more information about still i rise on our website ktvu.com. look for it under the web links section on the "mornings on 2" tab. also on the mobile app. we will be right back after this. comfort food...
9:29 am
you've had a good long run. but your time is over. it's time for something new. something simple. grown right here in california with absolutely no antibiotics ever. food we're comfortable eating. making. serving. this is the new comfort food. and it starts with foster farms simply raised chicken. california grown with no antibiotics ever. let's get comfortable with our food again.
9:30 am
welcome back to "the 9". we are checking twitter. we are still talking about the big controversy that started happening over the weekend. colin kaepernick made the decision to remain seated for the national anthem at the 49ers game in santa clara.
9:31 am
a lot of response. we started seeing pictures of people burning their kaepernick jerseys. our question of the day is, what do you think about that? >> i think he is brave, says adam klein berg. there is the opposite view. richard bullock says the 49ers should release him. he puts more effort in that than on the field. >> i put this on my facebook last night. raw video. he is just a failure looking for attention and new fans. corey says i think he was totally disrespectful and it was in poor taste. and then actually vince said an interesting thing. could have been played out in other ways, other venues that would not have had to interfered, and put this in caps, on the job. >> also on my facebook page, still stand up for your country. not for the few bad pulls. the conversation continues on the ktvu facebook page as well as on twitter. we appreciate your using
